6

The numbers behind Mesut Ozil’s move from Arsenal to Fenerbahce have been revealed, with the German superstar set to earn € 4million a year as a base salary, along with a host of lucrative extras.

The 32-year-old is expected to confirm his exit from Emirates Stadium, having played no part in their games this season. His contract is expected to be terminated on each other which means he will be free to join Fenerbahce for nothing in this window.

The fact that the Turkish giants avoid paying fees to Arsenal has allowed them to lure Ozil away from north London with a living wage. According to Turkish media Sporx, the ex-Real Madrid star will sign a three-and-a-half-year contract with Fenerbahce, with a base salary of € 4m per season.

However, its deal will include plenty of add-ons to sweeten it even further.

Ozil will be rewarded with a bonus of € 25,000 for every appearance he makes, as well as half a million euros if Fenerbahçe wins the title. He will also earn € 250,000 for reaching and participating in the Champions League.

On top of all that, the midfielder has been offered a € 5million signing bonus from the club, which will be paid over three years in installments. Due to the large numbers involved in the transaction, part of the costs will be paid by the sponsors.

Ozil will be eager to get back on the pitch and play some football, after being kicked out of Arsenal’s squad by Mikel Arteta. The Spanish coach has decided not to register his highest-paid player for one of the competitions, leaving Ozil to support his teammates on the sidelines.

A deal is expected to be announced shortly, after Fenerbahce hinted at the transfer on his official Twitter account on Saturday.
